Water Tanks – Cairns

 

Cairns is a city in the Tropical Far North Queensland Region. The city is the 5th-most-populous in Queensland and ranks 14th overall in Australia. Cairns was formed to serve miners heading for the Hodgkinson River goldfield. Cairns later developed into a railhead and major port for exporting sugar cane, gold and other metals, minerals and agricultural products from surrounding coastal areas and the Atherton Tableland region. Cairns is now an internationally recognised tourist destination and attracts tourists from all over the world, who are attracted to the area because of the natural beauty of the rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

Cairns has a humid tropical climate and boasts some of the highest rainfall in Australia. Despite this, the region experiences variable rainfall in some years and farmers reliant on catchments such as Tinaroo Falls Dam in the Mareeba-Dimbulah catchment face reductions to their irrigation water allocations in years that miss out on significant inflows in the wet season.

Water is no longer the freely available commodity that it has been in the past and the community will need to have a stronger focus on harvesting and storing high-quality water in order to meet demand in the future for rural, household and commercial supply. Bore water allocations throughout the region are also becoming increasingly constrained and many farmers and commercial operators are looking for alternative sources of high-quality water. A case study showing how this has been achieved in the Ravenshoe area can be seen HERE.

If you would like to increase your water storage capacity for your business or provide additional domestic supply for your home, Heritage Water Tanks can offer high-quality water tanks for all your water harvesting and storage needs.

Why are our tanks suited to Queensland conditions?

#1 - Heritage Water Tanks catch more rain

It is predicted that Queensland will experience the effects of climate change through more variable seasons and reduced rainfall in years to come. With this in mind, Queenslanders' will need to be more mindful about water security and water storage solutions. This is why Heritage Water Tank's unique gutter system is more important than ever. With our rainwater collection system, which collects water from the roof of your tank, you can save up to 22% of your tank's volume in additional water each year. Our unique gutter system also prevents scouring around the base of your tank in high rainfall areas, as all of the runoff from the roof of your tank is collected back inside the tank.

#2 - Heritage Water Tanks are Built TUFF

The steel used in the production of our water tanks is a minimum of 1mm thick. This is thicker than the material used by most of our competitors and to a profile designed in consultation with Engineers to provide superior strength and exceptional durability.

With increasingly frequent extreme weather events predicted in the future, the need for a tank that can withstand the elements is vital. Our water tank walls are made from the proven, highly corrosion resistant ZINCALUME® G300, alloy coated, structural steel.

#3 - Heritage Water Tanks Arma Liner

Heritage Water Tanks Arma Liner is manufactured to the highest standards. We won't compromise on quality, which is why we provide high quality industrial grade liners for our tanks. Under independent testing conditions, our liners were rated on lineal weight or weight per square meter and were found to weigh 700g/m2. This was of particular interest, because our closest competitor's liner weighed under 500g/m2.

The high density of our liner material is why Heritage Water Tanks also comes out on top against our main competitors for Weld Shear Strength and Puncture Strength.

Water Tank Sizes & Capacities

Choosing the right tank for your needs should not be a difficult task. Use our RAINWATER HARVEST CALCULATOR to see how much water you can collect from the surface of your house and any sheds you plan to collect water from. Most households with 4 people use around 240,000kL per year for general household use. If you have more people in your household or if you have a large garden, you may need more storage.
